AFTER two years of construction, Sunderland’s Echo 24 development is finished – making a significant contribution to the skyline and attracting property buyers from near and far with its innovative design.

With work on the landmark, 11-storey building now complete, people are starting to occupy the apartments and indulge in the latest in city living.

The 179 apartments are proving popular with locals, those looking to move from farther afield as well as investors hoping to make an early purchase in this up and coming market, indicating that Echo 24 caters for a real mix of buyers. Mike Orr, commercial director at Glenrose Developments, joint venture partners of Echo 24, said: “As a finished building, Echo 24 is even more impressive than we’d imagined – fusing together striking architecture and flexible living spaces and delivering them to the heart of the city for the first time.

“The progress of this building has been keenly watched by local residents and those outside of the area – bringing the ambitious redevelopment of Sunderland to the front of the agenda on both a regional and national scale and raising awareness of the city’s changing face.

Marking an important step for Sunderland, Echo 24’s success as the city’s first large-scale apartment development certainly paves the way for similar projects along the riverside.”

In a prime position on a bank of the River Wear, Echo 24 is a combination of two-bedroom apartments and two- and three-bedroom duplex properties, with prices from £194,950.

Being both stylish and practical, these homes cater for the requirements of today’s buyers perfectly and the remaining properties are sure to be snapped up in no time. Together with a host of extras that include 24-hour concierge service, secure underground parking, CCTV and electronic entry system, Echo 24 ensures city centre living is as safe as it is alluring.

Echo 24 is conveniently situated for both the north and south of the region via the A19 and the A1018, and enjoys fast commuter access to Newcastle – being just a stone’s throw from both St Peter’s and Sunderland Metro stations.
